    The first thing is the view. on a beautiful day you see the sail boats passing by with the golden gate bridge in the background, very romantic and inspiring. The food is delicious, came here for brunch, the shrimp pesto was very tasty and the clam chowder was absolutely incredible. Almost every table was occupied and I understand why, because the food and the view is worth it to spend to some time here.

    I surprised my girlfriend and took her to The Caprice for our anniversary and my expectations were surpassed! The view, alone, was amazing, but what really sold me was the customer service and their delicious cuisine. I parked a couple blocks away, but after finding the valet, he offered me a closer spot free of charge! The hostess and our waiter, Jeff, were very friendly and set us up with the best seat in the house! For an entree we had the crispy calamari and split the Caesar salad, both were great! I had the filet mignon with green beans and potato gratin for dinner. The filet was cooked to perfection and the gratin was superb! Make sure to try the Chocolate trip for dessert! Awesome dining experience, I'll definitely be coming back.

    What a surprise -- we hadn't been to The Caprice for many years! The food was really fantastic, the best we've had in a long time. My filet mignon was to die for! Service was excellent too, sometimes a little slow. And of course the view of the city and Golden Gate bridge were wonderful. We're anxious to return very soon.

    Took out of town friends to A Caprice for brunch - we were late, as their plane was late arriving at SFO. The folks at the restaurant were extremely nice and accommodating about it (we were really too late for brunch). The view was outstanding, and it was fun to watch the people fishing on the little pier next to the restaurant. The food was just OK - not bad, but certainly nothing to write home about. That being said, I would go back if I had other people who had never been to the Bay Area.

    I was very pleasantly surprised at the service at this restaurant. The food was delicious but the service was fantastic. The art of service is always one of those things that I admire, being able to silently create an experience of being taken care of without calling too much attention to yourself. Our server was just that. He gave us everything we needed before we even noticed we needed it. It was a quaint restaurant, right over the water over looking the Golden Gate Bridge and the lights of San Francisco. I had the scallops which are quite a difficult dish to do, creamy texture with a seared almost caramelized on the edges. I would definitely dine here again for a romantic evening away from the rush of the city.

    We went there for our anniversary and it was the perfect choice. A very romantic ambiance with an spectacular view over the Belvedere Cove. And the chef surprised us with a nice Happy Anniversary message on our desert dish! Food was great, as you would expect from a restaurant with a real chef, however between the two dishes that we ordered I would say the Salmon was "amazing" and Halibut was "very good."

    From the welcome to the end of the meal, service was excellent and views unique. Caprice doesn't forget the special discreet attention. I just mentioned we were celebrating our friend 89th birthday. When serving his dessert, the little candle was on top of his apple pie. The food was excellent and staff very professional. The only little thing annoying from time to time was the noise.

    We really enjoy dining at A Caprice. It is a small restaurant with huge views of San Francisco, Angel Island, and Tiburon. Because it is perched at the water's edge, the water swirls just beneath you. There is a fishing pier right next to the restaurant so it is fun to watch the ongoing activity of the fishermen, and the seals competing for the crabs or fish. The food is good, not outstanding, but good, and the service is friendly and welcoming.

    You don't come here for the food- which is mediocre- but you most definitely come here for the view. Unless you have the misfortune of coming here on a totally fogged out night, the view of The Golden Gate is magnificent. Another plus for those coming from the city, Caprice is a short and stunning walk from the Tiburon Ferry pier.

    Anniversary dinner for my husband and I and we had a lovely table by the window. The asparagus soup was fabulous and the beet salad hit the spot. One of our oysters wasn't to our standards. For dinner we both had lamb chops and they were more medium than medium rare but tasty nonetheless. Caprice is a lovely old time restaurant with great views of the bridge and the city. Good spot for special occassions

    I enjoyed my first time at The Caprise. It was a very nice day on the Marin side and a touch of fog on the City side. My bride started with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc and some great bread. Then went share the Boston lettuce salad and then had the linguini with pesto topped with shrimp. the Topper was the two sorbets (peach and strawberry?) with red fruit - strawberries and raspberries. She said her view of Angel Island, the Bay and the City were scrumptious. So big success!
